Do You Have Any Tips for Those Seeking to Move Interstate?

We’ve compiled a list of top tips for those looking to move interstate in our interstate relocations guide.

How Much Do I Stand to Save By Hiring a Truck instead of a Removalist?

How much money you ultimately save when compared to a removalist, depends on a number of key factors such as:

  • The amount of furniture/equipment you are transporting
  • The distance you require your items to be transported
  • The time required to complete the move; this includes the time taken to load, transport and unload your equipment. Some removalists may also choose to include the time taken to travel from their headquarters to your premises as well
  • The time of year and time of week that you’re looking to move. Removalist companies typically charge much more in the holiday seasons and extra expenses will be incurred for those looking to move on a weekend as opposed to a weekday

With all these factors considered, a removalist company can charge anywhere from several hundred dollars for a small scale move that is local to many thousands of dollars to haul a larger amount of belongings. If you’re relocating interstate, a removalist will be substantially more expensive.

Do I Require Insurance to Hire a Rental Truck?

No. All of our trucks come with standard insurance and come with a standard damage liability of $5000. This can be reduced by upgrading to one of our premium insurance cover packages. Please refer to the ‘Summary Terms and Conditions’ section of our Terms and Conditions page.

Am I Required to Pull Over at a Public Weighbridge with My Hire Truck?

Any truck carrying in excess of two metric tonnes is required to pull over at a public weighbridge/weight station.

Are There Any Additional Road Rules When Operating a Hire Truck?

  • Be sure to pull over public weighbridges/weigh stations
  • Ensure that all cargo is appropriately fastened before departing

Which Truck Size Is Right for Me?

It’s a good idea to select a truck that is going to enable you to transport the entire contents of your home (or business) in a single journey. Our 3 tonne Pantech trucks have a storage capacity of 20m³, which is enough to fit the contents of a 3 bedroom unit, while the 5-6 tonne Pantech offers almost double the space at 36m³, enough to carry the entire contents of a 4 bedroom home. Be sure to speak with our friendly support staff who will gladly discuss your situation and help ensure that you choose the right size of truck for your requirements.
